Growing Bookworms Newsletter: July 12: Keeping a Diary and Selecting Comfort Reads

JRBPlogo-smallToday, I will be sending out a new issue of the Growing Bookworms email newsletter. (If you would like to subscribe, you can find a sign-up form here.) The Growing Bookworms newsletter contains content from my blog focused on growing joyful learners, mainly bookworms, but also mathematicians and learners of all types. The newsletter is sent out every two to three weeks.

Newsletter Update:  In this relatively brief issue I have four book reviews (picture books through middle grade/middle school) and one post with my daughter's latest literacy milestone (keeping a diary). I also have two posts with links that I shared recently on Twitter

Reading Update: In the last two weeks I finished three adult novels.  I read/listened to: 

AdventurersGuildI'm currently reading The Adventurers Guild by Zack Loran Clark and Nick Eliopulos and listening to Lockdown by Laurie R. King. My daughter and I are still reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire together, as we will be for a while. You can find her 2017 reading list here. I've noticed that her comfort reading these days consists primarily of Jarrett Krosoczka's Lunch Lady graphic novels. She had a tiring couple of days of sporting and social events this weekend, and when she disappeared for a while I thought she might be sleeping. But no. She came back down having read (for at least the fifth time each) the last two Lunch Lady books. 

Thanks for reading, and for growing bookworms. Here's to lots more summer reading!
